Azusa, Calif. -- Playing the final road game of the season on Saturday, the San Diego Christian College men’s soccer team pulled a difficult task: trying to find a way to defeat the #11 Azusa Pacific Cougars. After an even first half, the Cougars scored three goals in the second to take the game 3-0.

The loss sends SDCC to 3-9-1 and 1-5 in the GSAC, while APU moves to 10-2-1 and 4-1-1 in the GSAC.

The Hawks fought tough in the first half, equaling the shots by APU, to head into half with a scoreless score.

APU scored quickly in the second half, when they were able to sneak a ball past keeper Cameron Riley, when Riley saved a shot. However, the ball deflected to APU’s Nathan Nuehuis who knocked it into the goal.

The Cougars scored two goals late (87th and 88th minutes) to put the game away.

Riley played all 90 minutes in goal for SDCC, collecting six saves.

SDCC heads home for a matchup with Vanguard on Tuesday, October 25th at 3:00pm.
